RESEARCH IN MINORITY WOMEN Seminar @ OLCDC
Nov 12 @ 12:30 pm – 3:00 pm
RESEARCH IN MINORITY WOMEN Seminar @ OLCDC | Opa-locka | Florida | United States

We’re talking about how the health scene is extravagantly different for women of color than it is for any other group.

A discrepancy exists between minority women and research (for example clinical trials, non-therapeutic trials). Some racial minorities, especially Blacks/African Americans, are still not well represented in most drug development programs and remain an area where improvement is needed. During this group session, we will offer a comfortable space for women to learn about the importance of research in minority women by Dr.Sophia George, a scientist from the University of Miami.
